sure as heck was not entitled to see and that's why the fbi did this. late at night, fbi agents raiding mrs. broadwell's north korea home on monday. it's why a 16-month panel discussion that might never have seen the light of day at the aspen institute all of a sudden now becomes very interesting. some added cig significance, shall we saw, because mrs. broadwell talked about being in general petraeus' inner circle in afghanistan. >> and i was embedded with general petraeus in afghanistan and it was a little confusing for some of the folks there because i'm also a military reservice, so a will the of my former peers didn't know how to treat me. was i major broadwell or journalist broadwell? i had to follow very clear lines of disclosure. i felt like i was held to a higher level of accountability because i could lose my clearance, yet i was entrust ed on this opportunity to sit in with meetings with general petraeus, listen to classified chatter of terrorist talk. >> boy. terrorist talk. just chatter. i'll just sit in on that. that's kind of a big deal. so from all we know, the affair bet

motivated to investigate those e-mails. something like that should not and would not rise to an fbi probe? >> it's a great question, and what we found out was the way he was being described was really inaccurate. people had initially reported and republican leaders had described him as a whistleblower who came forward, complaining to cantor, house majority leader cantor's office because he was worried the fbi investigation that uncovered an affair by the cia director david petraeus was stalled for political reasons. it was implied he was concerned about the progress of this case and worried about it being shelved improperly. what we found in our reporting is sources very close to humphries and aware of his account, briefed on his information, tell us quite a different story about the agent. he's a tampa agent who had a long-standing sort of social acquaintance with jill kelley, the woman in tampa. he basically forwarded some information to his tampa fbi colleagues about harassing e-mails that were more interesting than everyday harassing e-mails because they mentioned a four-star general.

off the fbi and accused petraeus' mistress, paula broadwell of sending her harassing e-mails. accusing others of violating her privacy. >>> a chinese news site ran an article from the satyrical website "the onion" as if it was a real news story. made north korea's kim jong un the sexiest man aloiv. it seems that china's news agency missed the punch line. come on, zain verjee. really? >> finally, kim jong un, the sexiest man alive. as i like to call him kim jong un. here is why i think that. i find him devastatingly handsome. round face, boyish charm, strong, sturdy frame. heartthrob is every woman's dream come true. this is the onion, okay? impeccable fashion sense, chic, short hairstyle and, of course, that famous smile. you know the one i'm talking about. right, carol? >> oh, yeah. >> anyway, the people's daily online picked the story up. they thought it was for real. they thought it was serious. they missed this whole little thing called satire and printed it as a real story. onion saying, yay, we fooled china and china saying how dare they do that? they pulled the story because the
this not get xhiktd? >> in this particular case what happened was the sheriff's department didn't alert the fbi and other law enforcement entities who were more adept at deeg with this issue than they were. they just took what they had and it could have been discovered had they asked for help. they didn't, and here we have it. >> joey jackson, it's great to have you here. it seems like a big, epic miss. >> very much so. that's an understatement. >> it's an understatement. all right, guys. thanks for watching
, what happened is he told the senators that it was actually the fbi who took al qaeda references out of the unclassified talking points. only to call back several hours later saying, oops, i was wrong, it wasn't the fbi, it was the cia. here is what lindsey graham said about that. >> i can't help but feel incredibly disappointed that we were told something at 10:00 a.m. that couldn't withstand scrutiny for six hours. and is totally inconsistent with what we were told the day before. we have five different explanations of who changed the talking points to take out benghazi. and four different reasons. this is becoming a joke. >> so what these meetings least this particular issue has done is added fuel to the fire and it is not like, you needed to add any more fuel to the fire, especially for senators like lindsey graham who is already really publicly outraged about a lot of issues dealing with the benghazi attack. >> this is just one more. one more. dana bash, thank you. >>> after trashing the hit tv show "two and a half men," the actor angus jones, now back tracking from his controve
scripted. there's still three investigations ongoing. there's the fbi investigation. there's the state department investigation and then congress also has been looking into it. those investigations aren't over yet. what senator mccain and other republicans are accusing her of is lying. they are saying she gave information that was incorrect and that she should do a public mea culpa and admit she did that. she is saying she was toefld what to say. she was reading the points made by intelligence. when it came to senator mccain she was quite diplomatic. >> i was great respect for senator mccain and his service to our country. i always have and i always will. i do think some of the statements he made about me have been unfounded but i look forward to having the opportunity at the appropriate time to discuss all of this with him. >> just one reminder of state of play on this investigation and information. we now understand that the cia drafted those talking points. the dni, director of national intelligence removed the word al qaeda. they said it came from classic information. it's a tightl
of the cia told republican senators that it was actually the fbi that changed those controversial unclassified talking points that susan rice used, then called back six hours later and said, never mind, i was wrong, it was us, the cia who did it. i just interviewed lindsey graham who was in that meeting who is very baffled and very perplexed that somebody as high-ranking as the cia director, acting cia director would tell them something about an issue that is so controversial and such a political -- so politically controversial that is absolutely wrong. >> a lot of unanswered questions, a lotf concerns there and obviously very controversial. whether or not this moves forward, the potential nomination for susan rice. dana, excellent reporting, as always. of course, we're going to check back in with you as you continue to meet with members of congress. i want to talk about something that senator collins talked about, her concerns about the readiness of susan rice, given that she was assistant secretary for african affairs in the bombing of east africa of 1998. i spoke with our natio
of justice in the form of the fbi on to team 6. now, as far as i've heard, this has never been done before. we're not focusing on what's important here. we still have the northeast part of the country ravaged in the aftermath of hurricane sandy with no power or water, and now we've got a benghazi incident that's going to come out and get ugly after the congressional hearings kick back up next week. so we're focusing on a video game right now, and as far as i know, of all the taliban and al qaeda compounds we've taken over in the last ten years, we have never found a first-person shooter video game there. none. we found a lot of porn. no video games. so this is not going to be used as a tool to aid al qaeda in the taliban in their trista agendas. it's not a training or recruiting tool. it's silly. this is a knee jerk reaction. and ten years ago, the navy gave full access to david sears of soft studios in north carolina to all their equipment and men and materials to make a video game. so it seems like they just changed the rules overnight and guys got caught up in that gray change area, and
